Profiting off fear under the illusion of shortage. It's a marketing strategy and nothing more. But I understand the constant need for false paranoia, and as I wont be refreshing my browser or checking back to see the slew of hate received for not buying into the panic it would be best advised to not respond. [/quote] this is something people need to think about... everyone is so quick to think up conspiracies about all these corporations, banks, governments, etc... so, why wouldn't gun and ammo companies be any different??? [/quote] I wrote about that on the topic in my sig. It's possible that some corporations are deliberately doing it to make us buy weapons and ammunition (mostly on credit I bet), then they confiscate them for nothing by saying all those weapons are dangerous. I don't think it's [b]plausible[/b] though. The alternative would be to tell people not to buy them, and I won't drink that Kool-aid. NOT EVER! You have to realize that perhaps 100 megacorporations own the whole freaking world. Always better to be armed. A lot of people are NOT prepped in other areas though. They need weapons/ammunition/training but also food/water/medicine/skills. Added a link, there are 147 mega corporations, but 50 that own the lion's share. http://www.whiteoutpress.com/timeless/the-50-corporations-that-rule-the-world/ [/quote]
Today this gun thing got real for me.
I was in PA today and went to BPS and Cabela. I was stunned.
At BPS they were almost totally sold out of ALL handguns. CASES and CASES were totally empty. GONE. They were totally out of 9mm, 357 ammo and just about everything else. I took pictures but since there's people in them I'm not going to post them. Staff says they can't get anything else at this point, their suppliers are out. There was a sizable crowd scanning the empty cases and shelves. Salespeople I talked to said they are convinced that if anyone tries to take weapons from Americans there's going to be a civil war. They said they're seeing people who used to be anti-gun want to get one because they're afraid of what they think is happening.
Later, I stopped at Cabelas. This place is right off the highway and very visible from a distance. The crowd there was even bigger. They still had a few --
--handguns but nothing left that was a carry piece, imo. I'm sure they were depleted of the little they had by the end of the day. As for ammo, they were limiting to 10 box max. There was almost nothing left.
i'm finding it hard to convey how real all seems to be becoming.
